Says "The commercial version of PyQt can be used with both the commercial 
and LGPL versions of Qt."

Not true, now Qt is licensed under the LGPL.

You have to abide by the LGPL, however, which means that the user has to be 
able to relink a modified form of the library, Qt, with your application 
should they wish. You should check whether the LGPL is appropriate for the 
way you want to ship your program.
